    Which .40SW caliber pistol has highest capacity magazine in its *standard* configuration (no extended or after-market magazines etc.)?

    I was thinking about asking this same question except a different way. What guns are likely to be classified as assault weapons and banned?

    You should start your search at full sized pistols. My vote goes to Springfield XD40.

    Agreed - XD-M. The M&P and a few others come in a close second with 15+1 capacity.

    I knew about XD. Excellent gun.

    What other pistols have 15+1 capacity?

    STI is out of my price range, but just for info and out of curiosity, what STI gun has the monster load of 22 in .40SW?

    S&W M&P in .40SW 15+1. AND they are offering a rebate of 50 bucks OR 2 free extra magazines.

    The STI with 22 rounds of .40 is using an extended magazine extending an inch and a half below the bottom grip.

    Les Baer has a 1911 on a Caspian double stack frame that holds 18+1. That's probably out of your price range, but it's still nice just to look at it:

    ETA: Yeah, just confirmed quick, the HC-40 runs a hair under three grand.

    Having a lot of ammo isn't a bad thing, but making it one of your top defense priorities certainly is.

    I believe that the XD-M has the highest, standard capacity available.

    I think SA is doing this same deal with their XD.

    XD-m is probably the highest capacity gun in terms of rounds-to-weight ratio...great gun too. I'm not crazy about the looks. I prefer the regular XD for looks, but either way the XDm is still one sweet gun. I definitely want to get one in .40 some day..maybe they'll release a .45 soon so I can get that instead:)

    Seems 16+1 is about the most you'll find out of any pistol without a magazine sticking way out the grip bottom..
